Yes, it bugs me that Epiphone who used to make terrific guitars now feel the need to get crap copies of Gibson models "Made in China". Don't get me wrong - the Chinese are brilliant at making crap instruments out of good wood. They get certain details wrong though...
For instance - they put the colour coat (in this example cherry red) on the outside - & when you need to do any repairs to a broken headstock - nine times out of ten you'll go through the colour coat.
